When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants represent an unrivaled restorative dentistry treatment. In fact, dental implants have changed the face of modern dentistry in many ways. Dental implants provide a permanent tooth replacement that replicates your natural teeth in appearance, feel and function. Getting dental implants is a multi-step process that requires careful precision from a qualified and talented dentist. At Meadowbrook Family Dental, we proudly offer excellence in complete implant dentistry, which means we can perform your dental implants from start to finish!
Dental implants involve the surgical placement of a titanium post into your jawbone. The implant will fuse to the bone and act as an artificial tooth root. This is what sets dental implants apart from any other tooth replacement option. Since the dental implants are anchored into your jawbone, patients not only gain maximum smile stability as they chew, speak and laugh, but they also avoid the consequential bone loss that occurs when the jaw is not properly stimulated. Depending on the number of missing teeth you have and your personal preferences, your dental implant can be topped with a crown, bridge, partial or denture. We are happy to discuss the unique benefits of each dental implant restoration as it pertains to your case.
Dental implants require patients to be in good general health and free of gum disease. In addition, there must be enough jawbone present to support the implant. This includes adequate height and density in the bone. Bone grafting can be considered, however, for those that have insufficient jawbone structure for dental implants. To learn your specific candidacy for dental implants from Meadowbrook Family Dental, please schedule a consultation with us.
Remember that replacing missing teeth is critical for your smile aesthetics as well as your smile health. Missing teeth can cause adjacent teeth to shift out of position. This can make it more difficult to clean your teeth and disrupt your bite alignment. If not replaced with dental implants, you may also suffer from jawbone deterioration or premature facial aging. At Meadowbrook Family Dental, we can help you avoid the disruptive consequences of missing teeth with our expertise in implant dentistry.
